OSS voices must be heard in national security debate

Abstract:
Peterson argues that the legitimacy of the threat posed by terrorism today is widely disputed, but she contends that very real and infinitely more deadly security threats could await us in the future. The rapid advancement of technology opens the door for a whole new class of weapons of mass destruction. She warns that the terrorists of the future might employ bioweapons, nanotechnology, and chemical warfare to bring about death and destruction on an unprecedented scale. "The threat is real, to some extent. If it's not real today, it will be real someday," she stated.
